QGC delivers second water treatment plant

Water from the facility at Woleebee Creek, about 30 km west of Wandoan, Queensland, has begun flowing through a 120 km pipeline that meets the Dawson River at the Glebe Weir.

The pipeline was built, and is operated by, SunWater, which provides the treated water at nominal rates for use by agricultural and industrial customers.

QGC has invested more than $A1 billion in water infrastructure, including the Northern Water Treatment Plant and the Kenya Water Treatment Plant, 35 km south of Chinchilla, which treates water produced by QGC’s wells between Miles and Dalby.

The treatment plants were designed and constructed by a consortium of GE and Laing O’Rourke and have a combined production capacity of up to 200 Ml/d.

QGC Field Operations manager for Water and Common Processes Angus Hetherington said the water is discharged after passing through well-established filtration, ultra-filtration, ion exchange and reverse osmosis treatment processes.
